A woman goes to the doctor for her yearly physical.
The nurse starts with certain basic items.
— How much do you weigh? she asks.
— 115, she says.
The nurse puts her on the scale.
It turns out her weight is 140.
The nurse asks:
— Your height?
— 5 foot 8, she says.
The nurse checks and sees that she only measures 5′ 5.
She then takes her blood pressure
And tells the woman it is very high.
— Of course it’s high! she screams,
— When I came in here I was tall and slender! Now I’m short and fat!
